conversation with democratic senator dick durbin of illinois. i talked to the majority whip just a short time ago. senator durbin, thank you very much for joining us. i think one of the main questions i'm hearing is, what does this proposal mean for people living in this country illegally right now? what would happen to them? >> basically it would give them a chance to go through a criminal background check to make certain that there are no problems in terms of their background, to pay a fine, to pay their taxes, and then they would be here in a probationary status where they could not be deported. they could work. and we watched them as a number of other things evolve and progress under the bill. border security leading to green cards, leading to citizenship. >> woodruff: we hear some advocacy organizations saying, wait a minute. even that level of requirement is going to be a disincentive. they're not going to want to sign up if they have to pay a fine and so forth. >> well, i'll tell you. that's going to be part of it. we believe that these people who have lived here for so many years in f
sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
to announce today that the five of us here today, and eight of us in total, including senators mccain, durbin, graham, menendez, rubio, flake and bennett, have come together on a set of bipartisan principles for comprehensive immigration reform legislation that we hope can pass the senate in overwhelming and bipartisan fashion. we still have a long way to go. but this bipartisan group -- sorry, we still have a long way to go, but this bipartisan blueprint is a major breakthrough. it is our hope that these principles can be turned into legislation by march, and have a markup by chairman leahy's committee with the goal of passage out of the senate by late spring or summer. senator durbin and i spoke to the president yesterday to update him on this group's progress, and he couldn't be more pleased. he strongly supports this effort. the key to our compromise is to recognize that americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration and support legal immigration. to this end, our framework contains four basic pillars. first, we create a tough but fair path to citizenship for illegal immigrants curre
want do move quickly. as i mentioned, senator durbin and i talked to the president and he was delighted we had come to an agreement. we will be working together very closely to try and get something done. obviously, the senate has a chance to create a bipartisan coalition because we need both parties to suck sold. that gives us a unique opportunity but we intend as senator john mccain said, the white house, the senate, and the house of representatives, all trying to work together, it seems to me at least, that senate is the most fortuitous place to move forward. >>shepard: one question so many people have, what is required for this path to citizenship to happen? carl cameron is back with us from capitol hill. karl, what has to happen? >>carl: will sponsors and advocates will talk about being a path to citizenship contingent on, and they will rattle off a list. first is securing the borders. that is contentious. there are some who believe the only way do secure the border is with a fence from the pacific ocean to the gulf coast. maybe say that is unrealistic and it would be porous and pe
would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "iraqi weapons of mass destruction." >> joining us now from washington to discuss benghazi and beyond, former assistant secretary of state, p.j. crowley. p.j., i will tell you, i began the day saying i was interested in the hearings, but did not know they would turn into must-see tv, which they certainly did around 10:00 this morning. i wonder what your thoughts were in particular between republicans in the senate and hillary clinton. >> well, i'm particularly struck by rand paul's, yeah, suggesting that the secretary of state, secretary of defense, president of the united states, will know every single detail of every dangerous situation that's going on within a broad and complex government. i know he's run a health clinic before, but

cain and rubio on the republican side. and durbin and schumer and others on the democratic side. they are really making progress. the president is giving a speech on tuesday with outlines. the question now is, is he going to send legislation up? that is still to be determined. and he just met with the hispanic caucus and with the senators in the last couple of days. the other thing is guns. and despite all of the hints from the white house that they are not backing off of the assault weapon ban, most people i have been talking to in recent days, inside the white house and out, agree that that is really going to be the biggest lift. but if they can get the magazines and the background checks and something on mental health, they think there is something that can be done there. >> senator demint, part of the calculation for republicans is whe where do they push, where do they fight. this is part of the self-examination of the party. bobby jindal spoke out, was outspoken on thursday, talking to republicans. here's part of what he said. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. i'm serious. it's t
from new jersey or senator durbin. and for democrats the challenge is, are they willing to give up a very useful political bludgeon with which to hit republicans in order to get a deal done? because once both parties -- if both parties embrace this, it's a political tool that in some cases, in many cases, is off the table for democrats. >> sure. it shows a compromise. that does help the future of the republican party. but while we talk about that, let's talk about the future of the democratic party. as americans we might have already seen it last night on "60 minutes." take a look. >> i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve. no, no. >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and this is taking place. >> you know, steve, i got to tell you, the -- you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> all right. so we're incorrigible. but they agreed to sit down to this inte
durbin of illinois, robert menendez of new jersey. and on the other side, we have serious conservatives like jeff lake and marco rubio. left/right coalition on immigration, mark. how does that work? >> i think it speaks to the ideological diversity of our country and, actually, the evolution of the senate now. and, you know, you see senate republicans that used to treat compromise like a dirty word and now they're coming out and putting forward a proposal with their democratic colleagues that to a large degree mirrors the key principles that the president has identified. i do agree this is a golden opportunity for senators like marco rubio and with the other guests that mentioned that, but i do disagree that the president hasn't shown leadership here. he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform as a key priority of the first, you know, as the beginning of the second term. so i think that what the senate democrats and republicans have done is gotten out in front and trying to make -- take ownership of this issue. they see it's going to happen. the president has give it an
ryan and dick durbin and their opinions on what the president needs to do going forward. >> the green line is historic tax rates, how much we raise in taxes and the blue is how many increases president obama is calling for. the red is where spending is going. spending is the problem, revenues are not the problem. if you keep chasing them they will hurt economic growth, shut down the economy and won't get the budget balanced. >> what i heard the president say was programs like social security and medicare and med aid critically important for our future and we need to have a bipartisan commitment to make them work. bob and i have been in a lot of meetings talking about deficit reduction. we need reform in the programs that mean they will live on to serve future generations. that's the message i took from the president. >> referring to bob corker to the left of the screen. the president has a full plate. not just the budget but the issue of guns, and this week he heads to las vegas for a speech about overhauling immigration. so the second term is already kicking off with plenty on his pl
